Singapore's Minister for Transport, Mr S. Iswaran said:

We have taken the opportunity of the two-year hiatus to comprehensively review the T5 design to make it more modular and flexible, and enhance its resilience and sustainability. We will re-mobilise the design and engineering consultants progressively, to update and further refine the T5 design. Depending on the pace of recovery, we expect to commence the construction of T5 in about two to three years, for T5 to be ready to meet the anticipated demand around the mid-2030s.
